Pantanassa Monastery

The Pantanassa Monastery (Greek: Μονή Παντανάσσης) is a monastery in Mystras, Greece. It was founded by a chief minister of the late Byzantine Despotate of the Morea, John Frankopoulos, and was dedicated in September 1428. It is the only monastery on the site still permanently inhabited.[1][2] Today it is inhabited by nuns providing hospitality.[3] Its "beautifully ornate stone-carved façade" is of architectural note.[4]
